A recent study at Johns Hopkins University has shown that consumption of 200 mg of caffeine helps with memory retention. The study was performed by Michael Yassa on 160 healthy men and women who were not regular consumers of caffeine.
 
Participants were shown some images, then given a placebo or 200 mg of caffeine in pill form, about the amount of caffeine in a large coffee. 24 hours later, new images were shown to them and those that had received caffeine were more likely to recognize differences between the original and later images.
 
For instance, a yellow ducky was one of the original images. Those that had the caffeine had better retention of the original image and were able to recognize shape and size changes in the image.
 
No, Johns Hopkins does not do quack studies.
